Meningitis and Flu Vaccine Awareness Campaign

Posted on April 07, 2017


Students at universities are at an increased risk of contracting bacterial meningitis, which is a very serious and potentially fatal disease.

The University of Pretoria has embarked on a vaccine campaign to educate and protect our students, especially first-years and those housed in residences.
